Summer’s Number One Water-Saving Grass

Aquaduct Turf Type Tall Fescue has become the largest selling turf grass in the United States due to its drought tolerance.

Aquaduct takes drought tolerance to a new level and has been qualified by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA). Aquaduct also demonstrates superior wear tolerance and Summer ground cover, making it a prime choice for landscaping.

This new generation of Tall Fescue is dark green and forms a lush turf that will stay greener longer without supplemental irrigation.

Two recent NTEP trials demonstrated Aquaduct to be a top Tall Fescue performer under Traffic Stress conditions. And in another separate NTEP trial, Aquaduct was among the top performing Tall Fescues for “Percent Living Ground Cover In Summer,” grown in several different locations!

twca-logoThe qualification of Aquaduct by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) represents a big benefit of this turfgrass, also making it part of the Turf Merchants Aqua Wise® collection of products. The protocols for TWCA certification are highly demanding, requiring that water-starved grass maintain green covering through a series of drought simulations. Acceptance of this two-year protocol is only available after the organization has received two year’s of independent third-party data verifying the turfgrass qualifies for testing.

Aquaduct is a continuation of TMI’s commitment through our AquaWise program to continue to offer improved seed performance for our distribution partners, as well as leading the industry in environmentally responsible solutions.
